Why The Corvette is the Ultimate Car

July 23, 2008

With today’s economy problems, many sports car enthusiasts have already given up their golden dream of once owning a 200+ Ferrari, rolling down Beverly Hills while blinded by cell phone camera flashes by awestruck, sidelined civilians that own beat-up Honda Civics. And now, they themselves have become part of the crowd, the daring ones maybe getting a hold of a Nissan 350Z or a low-end Mustang. But when they are standing on the sidewalk with their buddies, staring at a beautiful red Corvette cruising by, they would just laugh and imagine the driver’s face after filling up day after day. But little do they know that the driver of that supercar won’t be pulling in for gas anytime soon, for their 430 brake horsepower beast gets 27 to 30 miles per gallon on the highway. No joke. That’s why I’m calling the Corvette Z51 the ultimate car. There is no other car in the world today that has the satisfaction and looks of a supercar, the performance (ziltch to 60 in 4.25 seconds), outstanding efficiency, and above all – a price that won’t make you keel over. The Z51 packs a better punch as cars twice its price ($56,185 as tested). So why haven’t people taken the bait yet? I don’t know. With a car so good looking you’d swear its Italian, performance so good you’d swear it was Italian, and a price tag that is everything but Italian, you’ve got one thing for sure – I’m saving up for my 16th birthday already.

    I think what you say is true. However, if anyone was given the chance, they would buy an F430 over a Corvette any day. Performance is also another point you bring up…like i said during the chat, add on hairpin to the test….and thats the end of the Corvette. The Ferrari can already do a 0-60 sprint in 3.9s…anyhow im not comparing the two anyway. Being extremely passionate about cars, i dont think cars can be compared with an average. I dont think anyone truly passionate about cars can look at two cars in an objective manner…at the end you like the one you like. The moment you look at a car YOU like, you feel something…and that feeling makes you defend it till the end.

    Thats true, and the corvette is not THAT car that I deeply defend, Its just what I think is the best balance. I would get a CCX any day, 10 times out of 10.
